Library hosting ‘Countdown to Kindergarten’ Aug. 20

Is your child entering kindergarten this year?

On Thursday, Aug. 20 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. your child is invited to participate in “Countdown to Kindergarten” in the Children’s Department at the Bristol Public Library, 5 High St.

During the program, children will meet other children, hear going to school stories, ride in a real school bus, make fun school crafts, meet a kindergarten teacher, and receive a free lunch. Parents will have the opportunity to meet a kindergarten teacher and find out what children experience during the very first year of school.

The program is free, but you must register. Call the Children’s Department at the Bristol Public Library at (860) 584-7787 ext. 2021 to register your child.

“Countdown to Kindergarten” is sponsored by the Bristol Public Library, Bristol School Readiness Council, First Student Bus Company, and Imagine Nation A Museum Early Learning Center.child reading
